From Tired To Thriving

Health and fitness is not just about how you look on the outside, but also how you feel on the inside. I have created several programs for moms like you. 

I was a tired mom who did not run, suicidal, exhausted, disgusted by myself, grappling with negative self-image, self-talk and I felt lost in motherhood. 

Programs include: Fitness Kick Starter, Ab-repair and my Flagship program; The Nordic Way.

Cecilia, Norway

Being a working twin mom has always made it difficult tough to prioritize working out. This was until I got MJ as my coach. She analyzed my situation and my goals. Weekly she provides programs - just for me - and she follows up each workout. This has led to a shift in my life. Now - I have time for family, work, and training. And I'm reaching my goals and I have more energy!

Katie, MN, USA

Marjaana as my xc ski and run coach my training improved immensely! She really cares about me as a person and as an athlete, and crafts excellent training plans  to help me reach my goals - I already feel stronger!

Krystel, Dubai, UAE

Honestly, the biggest accomplishment of doing the Nordic Way with Marjaana was the "Proof" that I can do it, that I CAN GET BACK into the fitness program and stick to it.

You Are Loved. You Matter. You are Safe. 


My name is Marjaana Rakai, MSc, CPT

I was a tired, exhausted, burned-out mom who did not run. I had three amazing little hurricanes in 3.5 years while moving between 4 continents in as many years. I could not run 15 mins. I was lost in motherhood and in life until running saved my life, and I started questioning my own negative thoughts. 

Since 2015, I've proven my-old-self wrong in so many levels, but let's just start with these facts: 2 x Ironman, 4 x 70.3 Ironman, 1 x XTerra, 3 x World Championships Qualifications, 4 Marathons, lost count of half maras, 10K, 5K, and throw in there open water swim, road cycling races, and couple ski marathons. I started at 38 yo and I KNOW I can still get better at 45!

I have science background with MSc in Sports Sciences from the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences, NASM CPT, GGS Women's coaching Specialist, Tri Canada Community Trained Coach, continuously learning via, and Athletica founder Professor Paul Laursen, world renowned Exercise Physiologist. 

I am a brand ambassador for and Betty Designs.
